    Alan in SW Florida's Note:

    If you enjoy diner tuna-melt sandwiches, you'll love the taste of this. To save time, use packaged frozen broccoli florets. Jarlsberg Swiss cheese works nicely in this casserole.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. In a large saucepot, cook pasta in boiling salted water for 5 minutes; add broccoli to pasta and cook another 5 minutes or until broccoli is tender and pasta is al dente. Drain well and return to saucepot; set aside.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, in a 3-quart saucepan, melt butter or margarine over low heat. Stir in flour, salt, and pepper until blended and cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Gradually stir in milk; increase heat to medium-high and cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil 1 minute, stirring frequently. Remove saucepan from heat and stir in 1 cup of cheese until blended.
    3. 3
      Add cheese sauce and tuna to pasta and broccoli in saucepot; toss until evenly mixed. Transfer mixture to a 13"x9" glass baking dish. Arrange tomato slices on top, overlapping if necessary. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese.
    4. 4
      Cover baking dish with foil and bake 20 to 25 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Makes 6 main-dish servings.

      Simple & tasty, but, in my case, the Swiss cheese seemed to overpower other flavors. I have other tuna casseroles I prefer, but this one is okay.

      This casserole is yummy! I used the shell pasta. I especially liked the tomatoes on top w/ the melted cheese. (I think some diced tomatoes would go well in the casserole as well.) I recommend at least doubling the flour, because only 2 tbsp was not enough to thicken 4 cups of 2% milk for me. The family enjoyed this; we'll have it again. Thanx!
